After an investigation that began last month, the Grand Rapids Police Department says it is demoting one of their officers over his handling of a domestic dispute call.

Sgt. Brent Bradley is accused of not following the proper policy and procedure during the incident. Police say that Bradley should have made an arrest, but he did not.

The suspect was arrested at a later time.

Police Chief Jim Denny says that the Grand Rapids Civil Service reconvened its March 28th meeting and rendered the decision to demote Bradley to patrol officer.

Bradley has been with the department since 1987.
